The Carmichael Academy (the oldest one), has some of the best instructors around. Renshi Tim Leard, who manages the adult floor, masterfully manipulates the open space to create workouts that ...work you out. On the Junior Floor, Head Instructor Renshi Caswell excellently enthralls the young students in creative and amusing ways to keep the youth active and healthy. I have enjoyed my last 11 years and recommend Kovar's to anyone who wants to get fit or learn martial arts or other skills. In addition to physical workouts, Kyoshi Dave Kovar creates weekly messages for the true warrior. The balance between character development (mental) and the physical components of self-defense and historical forms has really strengthened me as a martial artist and human being. Ossu to all the instructors dedicated to making martial arts fun and exciting for all ages.

I highly recommend Kovar's. Ilya and the instructors there take their profession very seriously and it shows! The kids have fun and learn from the best. The kids performed at a school event at our school and all were impressed with the performance! You would not be disappointed!
